/etc/nsmb.conf The default remote mount-point configuration file. ~/nsmb.conf The user specific remote mount-point configuration file.
What follows is a sample configuration file which may, or may not match your environment:# Configuration file for example.com [default] workgroup=SALES # The FSERVER is an NT server. [FSERVER] charsets=koi8-r:cp866 addr=fserv.example.com # User specific data for FSERVER [FSERVER:MYUSER] password=$$16144562c293a0314e6e1
All lines which begin with the # character are comments and will not be parsed. The "default" section describes the default workgroup or domain, in this case "SALES". The next section depicted here as "FSERVER", defines a server section and then assigns it a charset which is only required when Cyrillic characters are not used. The hostname value, "fserv.example.com", is also assigned in this section. "FSERVER:USER", defines the user settings and is useful for saving the password used during a specific connection. The password may be plaintext or obfuscated using simple encryption. The simple encrypted password starts with the $$1 symbols. Warning: the encryption function is very weak and intended only to hide clear text passwords. If the use of simple encryption is desired, the following command may be used on a password:smbutil crypt
At the time of this writing, the IPX protocol remains unsupported. Future
.Fx releases are expected to support this.
